    Thumbs up 15 Employees Fired At Sdq Airport

    15 employees from various departments (immigration, customs, drug enforcement agents, maybe others) were fired yesterday from SDQ airport for soliciting cash from travelers. They were caught in the act by hidden video cameras.

    Good riddance!

    Don't mean to rejoice over someone else's demise but, good for them!!
    Some of these guys just don't stop. They start hitting you up for cash the minute you get off the plane. They have no shame.

    Correction: The 15 employees mentioned above were all immigration inspectors.

    Also fired were 11 DNI (Department of National Investigations) agents and 8 DNCD (national drug enforcement) agents who were caught on video during irregular activities.

    Never had any problems in Santiago either. Hope they do the same in POP, actually worse than SDQ... Never paid them a dime... "No tienes un regalo para mi?" -NO, por que??????

    Cibao International is under different management than SDQ, POP, or the new El Catey which are under Aerodom. Aerodom is good (SDQ is better now than it used to be) but they still need some improvements.

    Hopefully this is a sign of such improvement.

    Actually I get asked at STI. It's all over . - " Hola amigo, coperece con algo".
    And honestly, I always carry some singles with me because I know it's just easier/smoother to get out of the airport by greasing their palms as I go along and I kinda feel bad if I ignore them but, it doesn't need to be this way.

    Hm... you feel good when you are part of the problem, but bad when you are part of the solution?

    Wow.

    In some strange way,yes, you do have a point. I should hold my ground. And if we all do the same it would be better for all of us. But, honestly, it's hard to say "no" sometimes.
